Expedia CEO Khosrowshahi asked to lead Uber: memo
Expedia Inc Chief Executive Dara Khosrowshahi has been asked to lead Uber Technologies Inc, according to an internal memo sent to Expedia staff.
"Nothing has been yet finalized, but having extensively discussed this with Dara, I believe it is his intention to accept," Expedia Chairman Barry Diller wrote in the memo seen by Reuters.
Uber could not be immediately reached for comment.
Travis Kalanick, Uber`s pugnacious co-founder, was ousted as CEO in June after shareholders representing about 40 percent of the company`s voting power signed a letter asking him to step down amid growing concern over his behavior and the behavior of senior managers under him.
Reuters reported on Sunday citing sources that Uber had chosen Khosrowshahi as CEO.
